STEP BY STEP SERIAL VIEWS THROUGH A CITY

This series of images represents a journey through a city using maps, photographs, and colored sketches, and was developed from ideas in Gordon Cullen’s book The Concise Townscape, in which he describes a series of views through a city.

Underneath each sketch is an abstract diagram of a route through the city and each point of view is indicated on the route diagram. This allows for a clear understanding of the journey, while the sketches themselves explore and focus on a range of experiences. The pen outlines were sketched on top of photographs of the chosen views, and have been colored with simple washes so that the building outlines can still be read clearly in the sequence.
